Amber Teething Necklaces are made of a fossilized resin that was used in ancient times as a therapeutic ingredient. It was esteemed as a healing and protective substance.
The necklaces are made from the amber beads, and can be worn by either adults or babies as a natural pain relief.
2. How does an Amber Teething Necklace Work?
Amber has been used for many years as a treatment to heal many things that ail you. The way the Amber Necklaces work is through the beads, our body heat warms the resin in the beads and it is absorbed in very small amounts into the body.
The succinic acid that is naturally released can aid with healing certain ailments and is also a natural pain relief.
3. Is There a Minimum Age Requirement?
Amber necklaces are designed to be worn by young babies before and during their teething. Babies as early as 3 months have been known to begin teething, but it is up to the individual when they feel comfortable for their baby to wear a necklace to help prevent the pain from teething.
Please Note: It is important to make an informed decision when purchasing anything that is worn by your baby.

5. Do the Amber Necklaces and Bracelets Come in Different Sizes?
The Baby Spot offers several different sizes of Amber Necklaces and Bracelets.
Our Adult Necklace measures 45cm in length and the adult bracelet measures 20cm round.
All our Amber is sold with a Certificate of Authenticity and a list of safety instructions.
6. Can Teething Necklaces Be Worn During Sleep?
There are two thoughts when answering this question. The first is that babies should not wear anything to bed. So that would include the amber necklace.
Some parents do keep their necklaces on their babies all the times. It is a personal decision and you need to feel comfortable with your decision. Alternatively you can place the necklace on the babies ankle rather than around the neck, for safety reasons.
7. Do Babies Chew on Amber Necklaces?
We are aware that most babies go through phases where they place everything in their mouths. But, the necklaces are designed to be worn and not sucked or chewed on. As such the necklace should be short enough that your baby can not get any of the beads into his or her mouth. It is recommended that teething necklaces are worn under adult supervision at all times.
8. Are Amber Necklaces a Hazard?
As with all products parents buy for their babies, you need to do your own research and feel comfortable with your baby wearing an Amber necklace or bracelet.
All of our Baby Teething Necklaces include safety features like individually knotted beads, plastic screw clasps and are threaded on cotton threads. So, if the necklace was to break you would only ever loose one bead not all the beads on the necklace.
The clasp should always be the plastic coded clasp, never metal or sterling silver. The plastic screw clasp is designed so that if enough pressure is applied to it the thread will pop and pull apart.
